I am giving a tutorial on Decision Modeling with DMN: Extending BPMN to Decisions, Business Rules and Analytics at this year’s Building Business Capability conference in the afternoon of Sunday November 2.
Decision Modeling has recently been added to the Business Analyst Body of Knowledge® Guide v3 while a new standard, the Decision Model and Notation standard, has also been released. Decision modeling with DMN complements existing process modeling techniques such as those using BPMN, extending process models to fully incorporate business rules and analytics.
Although based on years of experience with business rules and analytics, decision modeling is new to many analysts. This workshop introduces this powerful technique so that business analysts, enterprise architects and all those involved with business rules or analytic projects can use it effectively. Decision modeling with DMN adds a unique perspective to your requirements model, one that dramatically improves the effectiveness of business rules and analytics implementations and adds a unique perspective to dashboard and related interface design.
You will learn:
- Principles and concepts of decision modeling as introduced in the new BABOK® Guide
- The core elements of the Decision Model and Notation standard
- The relationships of decision modeling, business rules, dashboards and other analytics
- How decision modeling with DMN complements process modeling with BPMN
